The first 2 production 737-400s are still flying daily with a Venezualan airline. Two similarly aged early A320s are still flying daily with Lufthansa. All are 26 or 27 years old.

Both models are a lasting tribute to the CFM56 engine as a new engine would be worth more than the entire frame now. But if the existing engines keep going so will the frame.

News from the MAX order front:


Royal Air Maroc is probably 1 of the unidentified customers:

https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...stomer-421695/


Their tail is part of all the tails that are on the MAX-8 prototype. Either they have a direct, but unidentified order or they have leased them via on of the lessors that have placed orders.

Last year it was reported by the French media that they had selected the MAX for their future narrowbody fleet. But that wasn't officially confirmed by either RAM or Boeing.

This image from the Roll out report of the Seattle time has the best picture I've seen to date.

http://www.seattletimes.com/business...oduction-line/




For the visible tails there not any surprises. There are some more Chinese tails that have only been announced as commitments, like Ruili Airlines. There are also a lot of leasing company tails, those can be confusing if you only expect airline tails.


I hope some spotters really zoom on the tails to get some straight-forward close up shots.

The only surprises I see with the tails is Royal Maroc and Air Algerie which are on the back end of the plane. Then I also see the tails of the big Chinese airlines that have been announced but not in full. The only tail I don't know is the one to the right of the SunExpress tail. I don't recognize that tail or an airline is debuting a new livery when they take delivery of their first MAX. Then finally see a lot of leasing companies which means there are going to be a lot of operators running small fleets of MAXs.

Carrier will become China's first 737 MAX 9 customer

SINGAPORE, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE:BA] and Okay Airways today announced a commitment for 12 737s, including eight MAX 8s, three 737 MAX 9s and one Next-Generation 737-900ER (Extended Range) airplane.

The agreement, valued at $1.3 billion at current list prices, is subject to the approval of the Chinese government and will be posted to Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website once all contingencies are cleared.

"We greatly value the ties we have built over the years with Boeing," said Wang Shusheng, Chairman, Okay Airways. "The Boeing Next-Generation 737 has been the mainstay of our fleet since we started operations. The introduction of additional 737s, including the new 737 MAX, will further modernize our fleet and ensure we operate the most efficient fleet well into the future."

This commitment will mark the first 737 MAX 9 order by a Chinese airline and bolsters Okay Airways' 737 MAX portfolio to 17 airplanes. Included as part of the agreement, Okay Airways have rights to exercise options for eight additional 737 MAX 8 airplanes.
